Carls-Jr_newsfull_hQ24N | Projections for sectors such as retail, real estate and franchising anticipate a better year for entrepreneurs, provided that new taxes are not approved.

The moderate expectations of entrepreneurs in Costa Rica in recent years took a positive spin at the beginning of 2016. However, the semblance of confidence is fragile, depending on the response of the government, particularly on fiscal issues, said Francisco Llobet, President of the Chamber of Commerce of Costa Rica to Elfinancierocr.com , when referring to the creation of new taxes.

El Financiero reports that “… in the coming months the arrival is expected of at least of 39 transnational corporations, the opening of 40 stores and fast food and “casual” restaurants and 8 new cafes. Also, 7 convenience stores will open in July, as well as more than 12 fashion stores, approximately 25 appliance stores and the automotive field will see the opening of 3 branches, a distribution center for parts and accessories as well as a workshop specialising in repair of minor damage. ”
